  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8x8 inch baking pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together 1/4 cup butter and 1 cup brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; stir into the sugar mixture. Mix in the walnuts. Spread evenly into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until the brownies start to pull away from the sides of the pan. Cool completely before frosting.
  4. To make the frosting, combine 2 tablespoons butter, 1/4 cup brown sugar and milk in a small saucepan over medium- high heat. Bring to a boil and simmer for 2 minutes. Remove from heat, cool and beat in the confectioners' sugar. Adjust the milk or confectioners' sugar if necessary to achieve a good spreading consistency. Spread over cooled bars and let set before cutting into squares.

These were much closer to a cookie bar texture than to the expected soft brownie tecture. I halved the brown sugar as I dislike overly sugary desserts. There was just enough dough to spread int...

Frosting is very sweet - should be used as a drizzle rather than a cover.

AMAZING RECIPE!!!! I made it and everyone at work lost their minds over it. One modification I made was the frosting. I used skim milk and added more milk and confectioner's sugar until it was p...

This is the first time I've ever tried making butterscotch brownies, and I'm pretty happy with them. They came out nice and chewy, with a good flavor. I left out the nuts because I didn't have a...

Awesome! These brownies disappeared in our home. I've been looking for a good butterscotch brownie recipe since losing my old time favorite one. This is a keeper!

I cut the sugar down to 3/4 cup, baked 28 minutes, and the brownies came out quite dry. Perhaps reducing the sugar to make them not too sweet as other reviewers reported, made a difference in t...
